Oran Park. 'Town' project underway

Developer Mark Perich told a Liverpool Chamber of Commerce meeting that Oran Park would be “a complete town when it's finished”.

St Marys. Greening a local business

Kennards Hire has teamed up with SolarSwitch, in a pilot project, to install a 10kW solar electricity system to make its St Marys premises greener. The 56-panel installation would generate about $9000 of solar power annually, more than covering its annual electricity bill. It would also save more than 13 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions annually. “We are trialling the solar panels at our St Marys branch and, if successful, we hope to install them in our hire centres throughout NSW,” said Cameron Kennard, MD, of Keneco Property, Kennards’ property division. He said an investment of about $50,000 (after rebates) would pay for itself in about five years then generate 20 to 30 years of free electricity. Kennards Hire operates more than 100 hire centres nationally and employs more than 900 staff.
